Join us to knock on doors in Concord for California Medicare for All! We are demanding California State Assemblymember Tim Grayson supports Assembly Bill 1400, the California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act, also known as “CalCare.” We also demand that Assemblymember Grayson call on Governor Gavin Newsom to lead on California Medicare for All and stop taking campaign contributions from the healthcare industry. We will be talking with his constituents about the urgent need for California Medicare for All and moving them directly into action by calling Tim Grayson’s office at the door.
The COVID-19 pandemic is shining a spotlight on the cruelty of the U.S. healthcare system — a system designed to maximize profit, not patients’ well-being. Millions of working-class people have lost their jobs and their health insurance in the pandemic-driven recession. Meanwhile, in California alone, 165 billionaires have seen their wealth increase by $175,000,000,000 since March 2020.
In the wealthiest state in the wealthiest country in the world, this is unacceptable. We must make healthcare a human right for all our residents. We must pass “CalCare.”
To win “CalCare,” we need a working-class movement to apply pressure on Democratic lawmakers into supporting Assembly Bill 1400. Our next target: California State Assemblymember Tim Grayson of Assembly District 14.
Join us on both Saturday, April 3, and Sunday, April 4, from 10 am to 4 pm for our socially-distant canvass at Todos Santos Plaza, 2175 Willow Pass Rd, Concord, CA 94520
